There are various kinds of web hosting services suitable for different sites in regard to the resources or the web hosting environment they require. To select the most proper web hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.

Shared Website Hosting - Positive Sides

The best alternative for small scale sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per user markedly. There are various web hosting packages differing from one host to another, delivering different amounts of data storage space and web traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain a package that will include the specifications your web portal really demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Domain Hosting - PowerHoster, offer a great assortment of web hosting plans suitable for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low grade account and you require more functionalities, moving to a more powerful package requires just a click.

Shared Web Hosting - Disadvantages

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Given web sites, chiefly web shops, request software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software that does not require complete root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that need complete root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A private virtual web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it works in strictly the same manner.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both environments traditionally come with full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server accounts involve diverse characteristics based on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual web server hosting plan has guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief intervals of time in case there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to cope with as it offers virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, some hosting providers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete dedicated server management operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra option.

Before You Choose...

Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web page. Before opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, examine completely all the requirements for the web site to work properly, especially if it is script-driven. And if you are still in doubt which one is the best web hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be glad to help you and answer all your questions.
